Guardiola admits Chelsea can win the EPL after 2-0 defeat

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has admitted that Chelsea can win the Premier League title after the 2-0 defeat that ended their unbeaten run in the league on Saturday at the Stamford Bridge.

Guardiola’s men were unable to penetrate the Chelsea defence despite having a general good play against Chelsea it was N’Golo Kante that broke the deadlock in the first half before David Luiz fine header went into the top angle of the post to give Chelsea a 2-goal advantage against Manchester City.

Despite the victory, Maurizio Sarri does not agree with Guardiola’s view.

“If you tell me Liverpool can win the title, I would say yes. If you say Tottenham, Arsenal or Chelsea can win the Premier League then I would say yes. Everybody can win the Premier League,” Guardiola said.

“We know that with two defeats in three games players give an extra bit, playing at home against previous champions.

“They are an exceptional team, Chelsea, and I know Sarri things that he needs more time but I see right now is a team to compete for everything.

“You see Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, they are players at a high, high level. Pedro has won two Champions League, Hazard one of the best in the world, Willian top class.

“The back four incredible, good keeper, so they are a side to be there. I don’t have doubts.”
